Cool stuff. Catching a giant bluefin is on my bucket list...swimming with them, not so much.

Gr8 video! Nice to see such large fish. Alive.
But I highly doubt the first video is anywhere near PEI (Prince Edward Island). The water in the North Atlantic, even in the summer is likely in the high 40's. Anyone swimming in water that cold would never be able to move that quickly for that long. Plus they would be "beet red" from the cold water. And that dude without a PFD would stiffen up and sink like a rock. It's probably the Gulf of Mexico where the water is closer to 70F, since tuna spawn in the GoM.
GoM or N.Atlantic certainly would be a sight to see. I could barely boat a relatively small tuna on my flyrod, would love to try some more serious tackle on one of those big fellas!
